The thread about email to AOL is not on topic to the original post. The
original topic is ezwind / classiccmp emails going to gmail.com and
whether it was not failing, therefore it must be the mailing list
I subscribe at both my own domain, as well as an archival copy on my
gmail account, which I seldom reference. I did also have a bounce
disable today when I went and looked. It did not unsubscribe me, but
had the link to do the re-enable.
I went to the user page, and found no link to get a bounce profile /
count for my id or anything as someone mentioned to attempt to help.
Where is that? I'd check that if i could see what the failures are and
adjust if I could.
I've not been unsubscribed, but disabled, and though annoying, and
considering that the list is a labor of love, I'm not complaining, just
helping. Please keep that in mind, or it may go away. Infinite patience
on the part of providers of truly free services may not exist. Glad to
have what we have when we have it to chat here.
I do see a number of gmail disables here, perhaps the logs aren't so
huge that that the bounces for the gmail bounces might be something to
diagnose the problem if we just let someone get back from holiday and
look at it.
Mean time, my main email didn't disable, and I have this thread and am
responding from there.
As to how everyone has their email clients / processors set up, that is
something that they or their providers are responsible for, not the list.
A friend of mine hosts my domain on a system with the network presence
for the domain on it, and has had it, and both DNS and the email service
have failed completely a couple of times in the last 6 months. Neither
time caused a bounce or unsubscribe. The list emails were held probably
from ezwind when it could finally contact our domains again, and I then
received several thousand emails (because I get all emails for my
domains in one bucket, which I filter).
I am not an email expert (which is why I won't volunteer to do much
here), but the failure mode which occurs when the sender or an
intermediate relay holds the email apparently holds the emails for some
period was probably triggered, rather than just an instant bounce. Also
he does maintain a second system on a different ISP for this system, but
the failure took out both systems.
Myy last unsub was on Nov 8 on gmail, now Nov 23
